Generation Y in the workplace


MSN has an interesting article about Gen Y in the workplace.

Employees under the age of 29, also known as Generation Y, expect their employers to provide more benefits and other perks than their older counterparts, according to a new survey from CareerBuilder.com and Harris Interactive. Gen Y workers want better pay, a flexible work schedule and company-provided BlackBerrys and cell phones.

I'm right on the Gen X/Y border, so it's been interesting to see the change in the past few years. I have definitely seen the attitudes the article mentions with some of the new hires in my workplace. I think both sides will end up adjusting some; the company will bend a little, and the new grads will bend a little... maybe a lot.

And for the record, I don't want a Blackberry, even if they offer to give it to me. :-) I'm too connected as it is. Lord knows I don't need another way to check email.
